Invitations inspired by the Goldfinch Yellow and Black

I promised that I would be back with this, didn't I? The first snow outside and I'm thinking of summery birds and flowers and weddings. Here is a collection of invitations that use that bright yellow, with a touch of black, green or gray. You can see that even though yellow seems untraditional, it can be done in a very classy and elegant way. But if you're willing to go "all-out" you can see here just how far and fabulous your invitations can go!
A collection of yellow inspired invitations.
1. Look how amazing this invitation from Swayspace Letterpress is at combining the old-fashioned silhouettes with some beautiful calligraphic fonts. 2. I love the modern yellow border in this invitation designed by Shine Invitations. 3. These notecards designed by me, Margot Madison have a bold yellow pattern on the back of the card as well as on the envelope liners. 4. This invitation from Apple Berry Ink uses some green and yellow in a more contemporary garden-inspired invitation 5. I love the white space and sparse text treatment in this invitation from Stellie Designs 6. You may know that I'm a sucka for pattern, which is why this invitation from Pink Polka Dots caught my eye. It shows the colorscheme with more black and just accents of yellow, but note the yellow envelope to pull it back out again. I think it's nicely balanced. 7. This invitation from Citrus Press Co. has more movement and brings those beautiful summer flowers into the forefront. 8. I love this kind of radical departure from the "norm" in this way cool modern invitation from Em Papers. You go girl!

Here is the yellow and black "Goldfinch" inspired colorscheme I did earlier this week:
